About Me

Having taught for over 15 years—I have built orchestras from the bottom up, taught privately, toured internationally, and most students have gone on to win numerous awards, and major in music. I am a fiddle world champion, author, touring artist, and session player. I’m active in choirs, bands, string groups, and tour companies. I teach from a standpoint of healthy learning and making sure each student has their own specific lesson plan. In order to play music from one’s soul, we must dig deeply into ourselves. I began music coaching for those who are needing a push into their own music careers because I saw a lack of confidence in many incredible artists. With my MS in Psychology, I take a musical and psychological take on music coaching so each coaching session is effective for their music career.

Professional mezzosoprano offers singing lesson to children and adults!
Hello, I’m Elena, I’m Italian and I’m an opera singer :) I’ve been training children and teens for 6 years, especially helping them with auditions and tests. I’ve been singing in theaters almost all my life since I started when I was just 8; nowadays I work as a professional mezzosoprano all around the world both in educational projects for kids and children and in big productions. I like teaching because I can share my experience with somebody that needs it and I always get to learn something from my pupils too: I swear teaching makes me a better singer. I give lessons for any kind of purpose: - learning music - improving musicality - preparing an audition - finding our own voice - overcoming insecurity Everybody is different, so everybody has its own path to go through; I cater my lessons to the pupil’s needs, and even if the method is always classical, I make sure that the hour of lesson is a fun moment as well as a learning experience. Music is life and life is fun! If what you have read interests you, I’m here to answer all your questions, so don’t be afraid: write me and I’ll see how I can help you! During the trial lesson, we will take the time to get to know each other better, assess levels and goals, and start to work on them already. I can’t wait to meet you!

Singing lessons for young and old, at your own pace (classical and other styles)
Do you like to sing and want to develop your voice? Great, because singing is great fun and healthy! During my lessons we will explore the possibilities of your voice together. The development of a healthy, natural voice and pleasure are central. That is why the lessons are fully adapted to your qualities, taste and pace. Together we work on a solid singing technique, breathing, articulation, interpretation, musicality and voice hygiene. We explore the classical singing repertoire and look for music that fits your voice. You can also make a trip to other genres (jazz, pop, musical, etc.) You learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but with a good singing technique you can handle a lot of styles! Why you should come to class: - You have always wanted to learn to sing, with or without a specific goal in mind - You are curious about the possibilities for (further) developing your voice - You are looking for a creative outlet - You suffer from a often tired speaking voice and want to make it stronger - You sing in a choir and you want to work on your singing technique or you need some extra help while studying - ... Whatever your motivation, you are always welcome! Do you have questions or doubts about whether singing is something for you? Do not hesitate to contact me.
